1959 MG MGA1959 MGA 1500 ROADSTER. ORIGINAL COLORS OF GLACIER BLUE WITH BLACK TRIM. 4-SPEED. WIRE WHEELS. HEATER. ADJUSTABLE STEERING. DRUM BRAKES. VERY GOOD SOLID CALIFORNIA CAR FOR RESTORATION. CORRECT 1500 ENGINE.
Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this very decent MGA wire-wheeled Roadster that has just been rescued from a California back yard. This car was purchased from a previous owner who had plans to restore it but never got around to it. Parked in 1982, It's your typical California car that has been off the road and basking 35 years in the sun here: good solid body, interior all there but weather-shot, needs a restoration. It's sold with it's original "pink slip" title from 1973 !
The body on the car shows good gaps, nice panel fit, good closing doors, hood and trunk lid. There was a bump in the nose at some point (repairable), some dents on the rear fenders, and the RH rocker and dogleg needs repairing/replacing. Other than that the very solid body has no other issues, and would require just straightforward restoration. Excellent frame.
The engine in the car is a correct 1500 unit which turns nicely by hand. It may even run with a little bit of work. The car still has it's original air cleaners (removed), and the engine compartment looks fairly original and correct. Original Lucas distributor cap.
The car's upholstery has deteriorated but all items are still there for restoration, including a pair of sidecurtains. The gauges and switchgear are correct and original.
The car is missing just a couple items which would be purchased new during the restoration process anyways.(grille, steering wheel motif, radio blank plate, taillight lenses).Overall, a great candidate for restoration. A solid, complete California car with wire wheels and good colors. These desirable, early, pretty MGA 1500s are highly attractive 1950's sport roadsters and offer very good value in today's market.
